This Chimichurri Recipe is beyond easy. It is really just blending the ingredients together to make an amazing sauce.
And how awesome is the gorgeous green color!?!
Green foods get a bad rap. I personally love green food. My favorite food colors are green and orange. Is it weird to have a favorite food color?
Chimichurri is absolutely bursting with flavor!
Not only will it give your food this vibrant green color. But, it will also infuse it with so much herbaceousness.

I use this Chimichurri as a dipping sauce for meatballs. Or I mix it with quinoa for an easy and healthy side dish. I bet it is really tasty as an alternative french fry dip too.
